John Legend – Same Old Story lyrics

[Verse 1]
Nobody's buying
There ain't any truth to it
The fact is you're lying
But I'm getting used to it
Promising we'll stay together
Down in your heart, you know better
I know what I lost before it's gone

[Chorus]
Tell me slowly
Over and over again
Same old story
Over and over again
Tell me slowly
Over and over again
Over and over again

[Verse 2]
Oh, say I'm overreacting
As if you believe in that
But you answer questions
That nobody even asked
Although we may stay together
Down in your heart, you know better
You pictured all the ways that you'll move on

[Chorus]
But you just tell me slowly
Over and over again
Same old story
Over and over again
Tell me slowly
Over and over again
Over and over again

[Bridge]
I will try to pull the wool over my eyes
You thought it would keep me warm
You said it was cold outside

[Chorus]
Tell me slowly
Over and over again
Same old stories
Over and over again
Tell me slowly
Over and over again
Over and over again
Over and over again
Over and over again
Oh, over and over again

[Outro]
Oh, say it again, yeah
Keep on, yeah
Over and over
